I recently stayed here with my husband and young son. I have given it a 1 star rating for the ease of parking, friendly management and location. Sadly that’s all it has going for it. Yes it’s a budget hotel, however I still expected some services. The building is pretty run down, however this wasn’t the issue. The room wasn’t warm or welcoming for a family. Tiles on the floors, not great when you have a toddler who likes to play on the floor. The room was dirty, someone else’s soap in the bathroom and signs of mould in the bathrooms. Sheets didn’t fit the beds and came off during the night. If you stay here, don’t expect a good nights sleep, as the lights from outside shine through the old 80s style glass above the entrance doors. Also don’t expect your room to be serviced. After discovering the room wasn’t serviced the first day, we asked for fresh towels and requested our room to be on the service list for the following day. No problems was the response. However the next day came and again no service was done. WIFI also did not work. The other guests also made me feel uneasy. Do not recommend for a family or for more than a quick overnight stay. Faulty towers came to my mind!

Booked six nights, left after three nights due to non-functioning aircon and the diarrhoea that resulted from the extremely humid conditions (my body becomes more sensitive to different foods i humid heat). I also got migraines (very rare for me) and had to spend money on fans. I was not the only customer who had been placed in a room with a faulty aircon. The smarmy manager kept saying, 'We've asked the technician to come, but he is really busy'. This is no excuse. Happy guests are always better than angry guests. Fix the aircons before taking bookings. Even Sydney hostels supply each room with fans. And this hotel didn't supply me a fan until it was too late (I had decided to leave for home early). I left a letter to the manager asking for a refund and have received nothing (of course). The hotel and the manager is the epitome of Sydney greed and cheating guests of basic confort and their hard-earned money. DO NOT STAY HERE

Response from , Owner at Marco Polo Motor Inn - Sydney
Responded 12 Mar 2022
During the Covid and Christmas seasons, there were few air conditioning contractors available, either because they were hesitant to work or because they were overworked During your check-in, the manager gave you a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room without knowing that the air conditioning was faulty that day. Please accept his deepest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. On the second day, the situation was brought to the manager's attention. He offered you another room right away. You turned down the offer. However, he did leave a fan outside your door. Before giving a refund, the manager and staff must take specific actions. You did not call or text him in response to his request. Finally, due to the covid period, he decided to reimburse your money. Throughout the process, he has demonstrated compassion and provided the finest possible service to his guests. Warm regards, Management Marco Polo Motor inn Sydney

The young man in reception is an absolute credit to your business It was absolutely lovely arriving to such a warm welcome after such a long drive. Room 102 was wonderful You have done a wonderful job at refurbishing the room and it was nice to see how it was presented. The lights that changed colour in our room were amazing. We have stayed at Marco Polo Motor Inn for over 25 years and have seen three different business owners during this time and We thank you for your hospitality. Regards Paula

Older style but very clean and tidy. bed was very comfortable free parking excellent location friendly service. I have stayed here a couple of times comfortable venue easy to get to and 10 min to city. If you’re not fast about older style and then stay here for budget accommodation in the heart of Sydney.
